Love it. Count me among many people who would enjoy listening to a
woman with that accent read the phonebook or a users manual.

Yeah, big advertising hit. Won Grand Prix at the Cannes Advertising Festival that are like the Oscars for advertising. Ridiculous, sure but it's a ridiculous industry that takes itself very seriously and I say that as a member.

They made animated series, videogames, dolls and lots of stuff out of these characters, far exceeding the expectations of a campaign to be safe around trains.

The designs are certainly great and civilians get a kick seeing these cutesy characters dying horrible deaths (they should check out some indie comics!)

I'd never seen/heard that before. It reminds me somewhat of those Happy Tree Friends videos.

Well, then - have I got the video channel for YOU: Jade Tan-Holmes, the writer and host of the YouTube STEM series "Up and Atom." Get ready for some heavy math concepts.
